At the 10th Computex event, in Taipei, to be held from May 30—June 3, Intel will demonstrate how the explosion of data is transforming the world.

Gregory Bryant, corporate vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group at Intel, will deliver the opening keynote at Computex 2017 in Taipei.

He will be sharing how the data-fueled world is a primary driver for delivering more immersive and personal experiences by changing the way people interact with their technology and each other.

Thereafter, Rob Crooke, senior vice president and general manager of the Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) Solutions Group will speak on future technology trends.

During last year’s Computex, Intel showcased how smart and connected devices use the transformational power of the cloud to deliver new experiences, data-rich services and breakthrough insights to people and businesses around the world.

This year, Intel will demonstrate how the data is transforming the world. Given the wide acceptance of data-driven insights worldwide, Intel has increased its focus on data business.

In his presentation during investor meeting in February, CEO Brian M. Krzanich had outlined strategy to make Intel the driving force of the data revolution across technologies and industries.

As part of the strategy, the company recently appointed Navin Shenoy as the head of its Data Center Group head.

DCG’s products and strategies- driving industry transformations to pervasive cloud computing, virtualisation of network infrastructure, and adoption of artificial intelligence solutions- have positioned the business to be the growth driver for Intel.

In the first quarter of 2017, Intel’s Data Center Group had revenue of $4.2 billion, up 6 percent year over year. The Data Center Group had operating profit of $1.5 billion, down 16 percent year over year.
